Chinese New year  is considered a very important holiday in China. 2017 Chinese New Year will be the year of the Fire Rooster.

In the Chinese Zodiac my husband is a Rooster and I am a Rabbit but I have to confess, I am not a believer in the zodiac signs and predictions. I am more into the philosophy of working hard, living well, respecting others, having positive thoughts and doing the right thing to have good luck in life.

But this celebration of the Chinese New Year isn’t only about the signs and predictions. Chinese culture is very well known to be rich in traditions, just like my latino culture. The Chinese New Year was first set to coincide with the farming cycle because in the past most of the population in China were farmers and the new year was considered a winter holiday in preparation to receive the Spring and get ready to farm the land.

Chinese New Year was a time to pray for a good harvest, rest, and spend time with the family. And now has evolved to celebrate the start of a new business year and wishing for profits and success in business, but still the family values and togetherness is an important component of the celebration. As well as enjoying a well deserved vacation to start the year energized.

Taking traditions from other cultures enriches our lives as we see the world from a different point of view while we adopt certain celebrations and make those work with our own beliefs. That is why we celebrate Chinese New year at home. Same as the Chinese, in my latino culture family and hope for good fortune are very important, so during Chinese new year we pray for a good harvest on any project and dream we embark, while enjoying a tasty dish inspired in Asian favorites.

Like this Chipotle Pineapple Shrimp Stir Fry, made with Kikkoman Soy Sauce with less sodium. A soy sauce that is brewed with water, wheat, soybeans and salt. It has the same great flavor as the regular soy sauce but with 37% less sodium. It is always good to look for products that allow us to cook with less salt to reduce sodium intake.

To add sweetness to the dish I have used Kikkoman Orange Sauce and Dole Pineapple Chunks in 100% pineapple juice. Using canned pineapple it is a good idea because not only saves time but the freshness of the fruit is perfect for desserts and for savory applications, like this Chipotle Pineapple Shrimp Stir Fry. I am glad that Dole canned pineapple is rich in Vitamin C, has low sodium and is cholesterol free.

Any good stir fry needs a perfect pairing and I have selected Minute Whole Grain Brown Rice
